The Academy Award-nominated A CAT IN PARIS is a beautifully hand-drawn caper set in the shadow-drenched alleyways of Paris. Dino is a cat that leads a double life. By day he lives with Zoe, a little girl whose mother is a detective in the Parisian police force. But at night Dino sneaks out the window to work with Nico a slinky cat burglar with a big heart, whose fluid movements are poetry in motion as he evades captors and slips and swishes from rooftop to rooftop across the Paris skyline. A CAT IN PARIS is a delightful animated adventure perfect for both adults and children a witty and stylish "animated noir" with a jazzy soundtrack featuring Billie Holiday and a thrilling climax on top of Notre Dame cathedral.
Featuring the voices of Academy Award winner Marcia Gay Harden (Mystic River), Academy Award winner Anjelica Huston (The Royal Tenenbaums) and Matthew Modine (Full Metal Jacket).
A Cat in Paris is one of those rare family films that can be truly enjoyed--relished--by adults as well as children. The French film, dubbed in English by an incredible cast, is a gloriously sensual visual delight. The colors and graphics are sophisticated and captivating, only adding to the offbeat and engaging story. A Cat in Paris follows the adventures of a kitty, Dino, who lives two lives: one as the purring pet of la jeune fille Zoe, another as a nighttime sidekick to one of Paris's most renowned cat burglars. The story is alluringly unpredictable, if occasionally rather dark. But even more, A Cat in Paris (Une vie de chat) is like a colorful graphic novel brought to life, here with the voices of Anjelica Huston, Matthew Modine, and Marcia Gay Harden. The direction, by Jean-Loup Felicioli and Alain Gagnol, is fluid and deft, with inside nods to the camera work of notable film noir titles as well as the French New Wave. And the story, in which a cat attempts true heroics, may be a bit too intense for young viewers, but older children, and their parents, will delight in the sophisticated, sweet A Cat in Paris --A.T.

I knew by the title that this had to have good music to go with the story. "Good" is an understatement. See it!Published 6 days ago by tightbuyer
Great movie! Gun shots towards the end can introduce frightening content for kids, didn't bother mine, they enjoy scarier, slightly realistic (as sad as reality can be) themes.Published 10 days ago by ron k.
